:D Hopefully, protection we can see... and feel.

I'm fairly new to saddles, but my Brooks Professional is really doing the trick for me. I want to try one of those gapped saddles next though.

Like to see some pics of you new pack, pigmode. I have been throwing around the idea of a Seagull courier bag myself:

Little late but here's the Chrome Fitzroy caught in action.

 

Load:

15# bag rice

28oz granola

1 dozen eggs

1 loaf bread

Looks exactly like my Mission Workshop Sanction, minus the color. I got the black model. Love that bag. Maybe the Fitzroy is a bit bigger?

 Yeah the Sanction is about the size of my Chrome Bravo -- all great packs. With the same load the Bravo's roll top would be unrolled, and an extension "sleeve" extended like below. The Bravo was workable but the Fitzroy is less unwieldy, and allows you to get at your locking devices more easily. That especially for multiple stops.

When one would *think* all the possible in bike saddles has already been seen and used at some point in time - the unthinkable happened :

The most intersting comment on our cycling forum : 

 

Next model of new saddle - with dildo built-in ?

From what if read, it seems that little fun is suppose to go between your cheeks to help with ride balance. I think it's a bunch of crap. People have been riding bikes for way too long for this to have any kind of effectiveness, IMO. YMMV.

What happens if you're not paying attention and hit a pot hole? Yikes.

Went out for a ride to look for a good group of cherry blossoms that wasn't by a house or street, but they are all by houses and streets!  Why aren't they at the park?

So many people on the bike trails because it was sunny.  I had to get away!

Got many looks and reactions on the bike today, mostly because of the wheels.

"Hey that's kool!"

"Those wheels are tiny!"

They'll stare at the wheels, then notice the fork, then notice the frame, and they are just like WTFFFF

 

 

I finally got a chance to go flat out full speed the last few days, and I gotta say it's daym fast!  The fastest bike I've had so far. It's kinda scary going max speed with the agile steering and maybe one bump in the road will make me faceplant, so I stop pedaling once I run out of juice.  I still have to lower the gear ratio because I live by too many hills.  But at least now I know I can probably never make the crankset spin from going too fast, so a lower tooth chainring is OK.

With all the padding on bike shorts I'd think that saddle wouldn't work.

I am so f-ing psyched to get back on the bike this year I can barely contain myself. It's been a long winter. ]

Here's my fleet....2010 Felt AR1 & 2013 Pelizzoli Corsa GP (Columbus Spirit steel, Felt F1 geometry).

Mmmm... - cherry blossoms :tongue_smile:. Hoprfully in not too distant future, I will able to post the related picture/story.

 

Otherwise, I really like your posts and photos. And the small bike with tiny wheels. I used to ride similar sized wheel bike called 

Rog Pony

I really "enjoyed" past three sunny days - because I have been  at the rehearsals and finally at the concert I was recording. Grinding my teeth seeing luckier guys spinning their pedals.

 

Today, I am free - to watch the rain...:angry_face:.
